Sometimes it’s really hard to beg my friends and family enough to get them to take outfit posts for me, so my InstaGram gets a more “daily feed” of my looks than this here blog, but I do my best to get some good digital images when I can. This is a look I’m so sad never got photos taken of, but I figured I’d share the Insta’ photos with you, because it’s honestly not that bad.

Tumblr/iPhone Outfit Purgings

As previously stated, my full time job and lack of personal photographer have hindered me from consistent posting. I’ve gone through my Tumblr now and saved some notable looks I’ve posted within the last month.































Obviously, though I don’t take daily better photos, I still manage to hold a fashionable look no matter what. I felt the need to validate that. Please feel free to check out more on my Tumblr here, or follow me on Twitter here!

Animal Collective

From Forever 21 to Swarovski, jungle animals have been taking over our necklines, wrists, and fingers. Slowly but surely more animal pendants have been making their way onto celebrities and all other fashinistas.

I first noticed this trend as it began to take over Forever 21’s jewelry department with sparrows, owl’s, and other winged creatures. Lately, though, more jungle animals have been showing up, like elephants, turtles, and giraffes. Prices on these are dirt cheap and range from $4.80 to $14.90.

Another fabulous place to find animal inspired jewelry is the online retailer ModCloth.  ModClothdotCom features a variety of stunning animal inspired jewelry from sea creatures to ornate jungle animals.  My favorite is their seemingly iconic Octopus necklace, which one of my good friends Corianne has had for a long time. this beautiful necklace is only $14.99 but sadly, you have to wait for it to be shipped right to your door. Another beautiful and unique choice would be the feathers for all weathers necklace showing off a peacock at $17.99.   

If  you’d like to add a little zest to your animals, I suggest JC Penney for some semi-precious jeweled animals. These prices range from $50-$200 for be jeweled elephants and snakes. Swarovski, ofcourse, is perfect for crystal and diamond encrusted animals. Here, you can find almost any animal you want…my mum once found me a miniature crystal hedgehog!

Animal bracelets, specifically elephants, are an easy find on the streets as well. Just last fall I bought an elephant cuff on St. Mark’s Place in NYC for a mere $7.

Really, with the way these accesories are taking over the world, you can find them anywhere, at almost any price. They are a great statement piece to own and add flair to any simple outfit. buy it, rock it, and have fun with it!
